slidell la homes for sale: Property Disclosure Documents - 07/19/11 07:32 AM
I have been in the business for some time now but I still get flustered when I look over the property disclosure papers and they aren't filled out correctly.  A lot of the questions are left blank and some answered yes don't have any explanation to the yes answer.  Why not?
I wonder if the listing agents realize this is to protect them and their clients?  Get these papers filled out correctly the first time.  It will save you time from answering extra phone calls that I or another agent may have about the answers.  It also will keep you from … (5 comments)

slidell la homes for sale: Times Grill Slidell Louisiana | Slidell Real Estate for Sale | - 07/12/11 10:29 PM
I don't get the occasion to take my family out to eat very often.  But when I do I prefer the locally owned establishments.  One of my favorites is The Times Grill located in the old train station in Slidell.  They have some of the best burgers I have ever tasted.  Don't care for a burger than try their grilled fish or the specialty of the day.  I think you will find something you like.  The prices are very reasonable as well.  This is another requirement of mine when we eat out.  I like good food for a not so expensive … (0 comments)

slidell la homes for sale: President Accepts Blame for Oil Response | Homes For Sale Slidell Louisiana - 05/27/10 08:19 AM
President Obama accepts blame for the Federal Response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill today.  While I am not a supporter of Obama, he is way to far left for me, I don't blame him.  I for one have very little faith in the government from doing just about anything except spending money.  They spend money better than anyone, just not well spent. 
I once heard a quote that the Government spends money like a drunken sailor.  Well one drunken sailor took offense, eventually ran out of money and had to go home.  Sorry, I digress.
Maybe I blame him and short … (2 comments)

slidell la homes for sale: Technology Isn't my Friend Today - 12/16/09 05:57 AM
Technology really sucks today.  I tried emailing a document to the buying agent no luck, email down.  I tried faxing it to her, no luck, won't go through.  AHH a bad technology day.  Gotta do it the old fashioned way and drive it over to her office.  Good thing they are only three miles away. 
When technolgy works it's great.  When it doesn't it will make you pull your hair out.

slidell la homes for sale: Too Smart for Your Own Good? - 08/24/09 06:00 AM
Is this possible?  Too smart for your own good?  I recently had a potential buyer view my own house.  I wasn't available so my wife let them take a look.  The buyer contacted me and wanted to make an offer.  I had told her I already had an offer but she was welcome to look.  She was offering $15,000 less than what I had already accepted.
I asked her why she didn't have an agent.  Her reply was as a buyer she felt she could get a better price without one.  HUH, is that what most of the public thinks of … (3 comments)

slidell la homes for sale: Tired of High Property Taxes? Then Buy a Tree Farm - 07/14/09 05:05 AM
I have been looking at several fine homes on forested land in the Folsom area of St. Tammany Parish lately.  I have stumbled upon several homes that pay less taxes than I do.  I asked several home owners but none would really answer the question until last week.
Seems as long as you have three and a half acres minimum you may qualify.  For example one property worth $400,000 pays just over a grand a year in property taxes.  WHAT, are you kidding me?  No, all you have to do is go to the assessors office and fill out the paperwork … (5 comments)

Congratulations to the city of New Orleans for being awarded the 2013 Championship game.  This is the tenth time the city will host the BIG GAME.  The first since Katrina flooded the dome in 2005.  It also is the first since Tom Brady won the 2002 game after the terrorist's attack in 2001.
Maybe the Saints will be at home playing in this game.  No city has a better footprint for this game.  The historic French Quarter is only a mile or so away.  All of the hotels are convenient to the Superdome, restaurants, casino and the already mentioned French Quarter.

slidell la homes for sale: Homes Built before Building Codes - 03/26/09 08:15 AM
Recently I took some clients to view a home they were interested in buying.  The home was built in the mid 1970's.  In many parts of St. Tammany Parish there were no building codes at that time.  I remember my father and grandfather building a camp by themselves.  There were no such thing as inspectors to approve whatever you were doing.
Well everything was going pretty well with the showing until we looked into the electrical panel.  Turns out my client is an old retired electrician.  He unscrewed the electrical panel to get a look at the wires and guess what?  They … (6 comments)
